The Power of Protect Stones

Three months ago, I was introduced to the power of gemstones through shungite.   The vendor next to my table at a wellness fair, Cosmic Reality was selling shungite, and I found myself drawn to the their table.

They told me that they were bee-keepers and that they had lost all their colonies.  In a desperate attempt to find a solution to bring back the bees, they discovered (more…)

Why You Must Protect Yourself from Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMFs)

I once had a client who had a bump in her mouth that wouldn’t go away. The lump would shrink with the release work I did. But it would keep coming back.

She was living in Taiwan at the time.

Inside her apartment were big-screen TVs that were wired to computers. The apartment was filled with EMFs (Electromagnetic Fields) throughout the building, and I got that the EMFs were interfering with her ability to heal.

How to Get Younger With Age

My feline fur baby Tuk Tuk just turned 15.  One and a half years ago, she developed horrible leg cramps that seemed to strike randomly.   She’d scream with fear, and then struggle to walk.   I realized that by massaging her back legs, I could get the blood flowing again, and she’d be back on her feet as if nothing had happened.  I was very concerned.

Debunking the Myth that there is No Science Behind Energy Medicine

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard that there is no science behind energy medicine.   There has been tons of research coming from David Feinstein, Ph.D.  Dawson Church, Ph.D., Bruce Lipton, Ph.D., Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dean Radin, Ph.D., and many others, demonstrating the power of energy medicine.   But despite this, there are still many who seem glued to the idea that energy medicine is not evidence based.

One of the leading contributors to this myth is Wikipedia.  Many of its arguments used to claim there is no science to support energy medicine come from the lab of one researcher, Edzard Ernst, Ph.D.  (more…)

How to Overcome Abandonment Issues

Do you know someone who has abandonment issues?

My client (let’s call her Anne to protect her identity) came to me struggling with backaches, headaches and vision problems that came with stress, exhaustion and overwhelm.

She had been struggling with these issues for years. But they were getting worse when she returned back to work after taking a leave of absence.

With all the pain and fatigue, she was finding it a real challenge to manage all her responsibilities as a mom and a new business owner.

One Simple Experiment to Measure Positive and Negative Energy

One Simple Experiment to Measure Positive and Negative Energy

Most people intuitively know that the energy we project does matter, but according to Joachim Krueger Ph.D. in Psychology today, there is no way to measure the difference between positive and negative energy.

I beg to differ.  I interviewed by Joshua Blatman for his Survivors2Thrivers podcast.   Watch this little demonstration of what happens to coat hangers depending on the energy Joshua projects. Then feel free to try the experiment with wire coat hangers at home.

One Question That Will Change Your Relationship With Yourself

I showed up to yoga, stressed to the max with everything I had to do.   I had talk to give, taxes to do, people to get back to, a book to complete, and a blog article to write.   As my yoga instructor was guiding us through her sequence,  I found myself cycling between feeling overwhelmed about how I was going get everything done, what I should write my blog article about, and trying to remind myself that I needed to be present.

When suddenly I had an epiphany.

The Easiest Way to Stop Negative Self-Talk for Good!

The Easiest Way to Stop Negative Self-Talk for Good!

My client walked into my office on guard. She was stiff and seemed unable to relax.  While she had a pleasant demeanor, she really seemed to struggle with being at ease in her own skin.  In short, she reminded me of me just a few years ago.

How the negative self-talk began

I learned that she had a narcissistic father who was very controlling and critical.  With him she felt like she was always under a microscope, and that with every move she would make, she could be judged harshly.   I knew exactly what that felt like.   It is suffocating!   That kind of treatment left us both with generalized anxiety, self-contempt and constant self-criticism.   We both were constantly on guard.  We struggled with knowing who to trust, and often felt defensive.  For both of us, making decisions was fraught with anxiety.   We would always be second-guessing ourselves, and overly concerned about getting things right.   For her, the self-criticism and questioning her judgment continued long after her decisions were made!

Just One Thing You Need To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

As the New Year approaches, it is a great time to start thinking about what we can do to improve. But if we don’t have a good track record with New Year’s resolutions, we might find the idea daunting. We might even be wondering if it’s worth doing. Indeed a 1study that tracked people who made New Year’s resolutions found that only 46% kept their New Year’s resolutions past the six-month mark.

How To Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions

But all hope is not lost! If 46% of the subjects were able to keep their New Year’s Resolutions, then what was different about them that made that possible?
